Chamomile has been used as a traditional medicine for centuries. You probably have heard of chamomile tea, a delicious soothing tea with calming and sedative properties. Both Roman and German chamomile are used to produce chamomile tea; the tea is made from the dried chamomile flowers. While both types are used interchangeably when making tea, they do have some differences. Roman chamomile is a perennial that can be used as an unusual, fragrant evergreen groundcover. German chamomile is an annual with a more upright habit, plus it has a pineapple-like flavor and fragrance. Whichever one you choose to grow, both types will attract bees, birds, and butterflies!
